I’d like to tell you that this accident occurred while I was playing flag football with all the kids in the neighborhood. Or that it happened while I was outside workin’ the land. I think it’d be awfully cool if I obtained this injury by being in a hard-core kick boxing class of some sort.
But I can not tell a lie.
Yesterday afternoon around 1:00, I was just about to finish cleaning our bathroom. I was rinsing the bathtub and was leaning to get the back part because I DID NOT want to get into the tub to clean it because HELLO, my dirty feet would have gotten it dirty again and we can not have that. As I was leaning, my legs were stretched out and I felt and heard a pop in my right calf muscle.
And then the IMMEDIATE, EXCRUCIATING pain followed.
Dear sweet Lord baby Jesus, I was hurting. I could not walk. At all. I hopped to get Chris and then hobbled back to the bed. And I have been off my leg since then.
We have not gone to the ER yet but will if the pain gets worse. I have no idea what I have really done to myself but have been in contact with my doc and another friend, who is about to begin his orthopedic surgery residency. So, I’m in good, medical hands. I don’t think it’s serious enough for surgery but I will probably be on the crutches, that the Spradlin’s loaned us, for several days.
It is SO, so hard for me to sit. Because I don’t sit, y’all. My sitting doesn’t usually occur until after 9:00 at night just in time to get me settled into the comfy chair for House Hunters. The Hubby and I both look forward to seeing Suzanne Whang’s face for we know that three house plans are soon to follow. Sophie agrees.
Anyway, I’m having to rest. And prop the leg up. And ice it. And now I think I have to start heating it. That’s all for now.
Love you all 🙂
